AWS CloudFront

Leave Feedback

Introduction

Amazon CloudFront is a web service that speeds up the distribution of static and dynamic web content
(such as .html, .css, .js, and image files). CloudFront delivers content through a worldwide network of data centers called edge locations.

For example, when a user requests content that you’re serving with CloudFront, the user is routed to the edge location that provides the lowest latency (time delay).
Edge locations help deliver content with the best possible performance.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select AWS CloudFront.
